Great place for a date but the food is average and over priced.

Awesome and so accommodating!! I messed up the reservation time and arrived a half hour late with 9 people. They did everything they could to quickly get us seated. Food is amazing. Great place for families.

Food is always great, and it’s a great ambiance. The spicy chicken rigatoni is perfect. Our server was AJ, and she is AMAZING. If you have kids, it’s worth requesting her specifically. She was prompt, personable, and went way above and beyond to let my husband and me have a great meal (and take a breath!) while the kids were happy with other stuff. This is always a great place, and it’s worth visiting every time we are in the Twin Cities.

Service was the worst part. From the beginning we felt rushed. Took forever for our waiter to get to our table, he rushed through our drink order and then our appetizer order. By rushed I mean, he kept cutting me off and trying to finish my didn't work. When you order a specialty cocktail, everything matters from appearence to taste. That sucked, they were out of the cocktail glass so it was served in a beer glass and the taste was blah.

Food was great!
I'll go back, hope for a better experience. If I got the same waiter again, I would request a different table.

Our family enjoys Buca and this is our favorite location. Food and service was great as always. This is a great location for getting to other downtown venues before/after dinner. We enjoy the cozy ambience of this location as well.

Really enjoyed the family vibe! Love that dishes come big and the point is to pass the dinner plates around like a family!
